We have completed our third week in
Shanghai. This week's topic is FOOD.
|Lunch in Shanghai, $5 a person|
|Dinner at Xindalu|
|Have not yet eaten meat on the street|
|Many different types of jiaozi|
|Yang's Dumplings: 4 for $1- our FAVORITE|
The famous Chinese lady on our block is endearingly known as the Vegetable Lady by all the expats. (Expat from ex-patriate, someone who is temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than their own.)
|Beautiful inexpensive fruits and vegies.|
$1 per avocado, $2 for 6 mandarin oranges
|Many foreign items, you just need to dig to discover. Chips and/salsa were found for $7|
We can walk to this grocery store for some of our needs, and hooray (!), we discovered the Costco-like store called Metro about a 20 minute drive away from our apartment.
|We love the fresh fruit desserts. |
Chocolate and baked sweets are not common.
|Bai Restaurant, $7 for soup, main course, rice and tea|
Restaurants are in abundance. We like to try the local places.
Our Thanksgiving Peking Duck was delicious- haochi- ( how chuh)
|Hairy crab is a winter treat in Shanghai.|
Next Time: How do the Chinese celebrate Christmas?
